Beauty Stings
These pine needles were prickly, but quite beautiful.

Continuing with my Exploring Saltdal series of photograhs taken during a nice long walk in Nordland's Saltdal in Norway with Siiw is this closeup of some pine needles.

I love the smell of pine trees, and how they keep showing us a promise of greener days, even during the short, barren, cold winter days. I also like how they can feel both soft and sharp.

I'm quite satisfied with how this one turned out, especially with the shallow depth of field and the contrast of the green with the brown background. :)

The photographs in this series are taken with my Canon EOS 1000D and post-processed in iPhoto 9.5.3 for Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
